We’re always trying to create a better experience for our users. That’s why we’ve adopted two new features make it easier to share Hulu wherever you are online.
Since so many people have Facebook accounts — over 70 million, in fact — it seemed logical to come up with another way to integrate Hulu into the Facebook platform. Our new Facebook feed integration allows you to automatically post your rating and reviews activity on your Facebook feed, giving your friends an idea of what you like to watch on Hulu — and it lets them watch the same videos you’ve reviewed, right in Facebook.
When you’re viewing your Profile page on Facebook, look for the “Import” link in the corner of your Mini-Feed to connect your Facebook profile with your Hulu account. Select Hulu from the list of sites, enter your Hulu username, and click on “Import.” Your profile will automatically update whenever you rate a video on Hulu.
Typically, embedding videos requires users to copy an “embed code” and paste it to their blog. Released earlier this month, oEmbed aims to standardize the process of embedding videos, photos, links, and other media. It allows a Web site to display embedded content (such as a Hulu video) when a user simply posts a link to that content. For example, microblogging site Pownce supports oEmbed so that you can simply paste the link to the Hulu video (ex. http://www.hulu.com/watch/5555/family-guy-chicken-fight) instead of the entire embed code.
We think this feature will make it a lot easier to share your favorite videos. For more information, check out oEmbed.com.
